Kyra Sedgwick's Bookshelf
By Rebecca Miller
These short stories are mostly about women at crossroads, about the ways each one chooses to move forward. Rebecca Miller herself turned the book into a film, and I played one of the characters, Delia, who leads with her sexuality. She's a woman with very few options and a husband who beats her. Then she takes her kids away from him, and you see her slowly get her power back. I never get the trampy girl role; I'm so grateful that Rebecca wrote this character and gave so many intimate details in the story of who Delia was, and then asked me to play her.
